The National Assessment of Educational Progress is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. This paper describes a feasibility study to determine whether measurement at the lower end of the student distribution, including measurement for students with disabilities and English language learners, could be improved by introducing “accessible” blocks aligned within the NAEP content frameworks.
AIR's NAEP Validity Studies Panel explores the relationship between NAEP and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and to considering how NAEP can work synergistically with the CCSS assessments to provide the nation with the most useful information about educational progress. This volume includes two substantial studies exploring the relationship between the content of the NAEP mathematics, reading, and writing assessments and the CCSS in mathematics and English language arts.
The reading and mathematics measures of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) have been, and continue to be, reported on scales that appear to have the properties of “cross-grade” scales. The conclusion of this essay will be that evidence can and should be assembled to support, and make more precise, certain interpretations, while others interpretations should be discouraged.
This study compares the measurement of mathematics and reading trends by two separate National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) statistical series.
